I don't, but several members do.. ;-)

Could well be a nice little boat...I'd be asking about transom and deck integrity..the transom has several extra holes..filled and other wise used. I'd put an offset on the throttle so its not so closer to the wheel, tidy up the cables with some spiral wrap, stick some mudguards on the trailer, give the whole lot a good polish and the console some tlc. And turn you could have a good one..

Engine is ideal and has a reputation for being fairly bullet proof.

Id not bother with dials..keep it simple like they were designed.

All that if the transom is fully dry...which would be my big question. But for 750 with the engine to be negotiated....worth serious serious consideration.

It has a curved tube on it instead of the original sectional version. It looks as though it is Hypalon as opposed to PVC, i've got a feeling I might have retubed that quite a few years back!

Is there anybody in Plymouth willing to do me a big festive favour and check this boat out as I know very little about ribs and this would be my first and I don't fancy driving six hours to find its no good.Many thanks to everybody's help and advise.
Regards
Nigel

I'm in Plymouth not sure I can get over before the end of the auction though. Shall I call him to see if something can be arranged for tomorrow morning ? Might be the best I can offer at the moment, according to my better half I'm still supposed to be off work, good job she's not using Ribnet

I'm guessing the tar some is what the engine is attached to are they a big job to replace if it needed (worse case) thanks Nigel

Yep...however if Ed did the tube some time ago it was probably worth it being done when he did it. However let's say that's maybe three or four years ago which is long enough for it to start to rot, but it could be fine!

Now i know that's the boat in question that's the only thing I'd worry about.

If only it was closer...
